First debuting on PBS in 1978, as produced by Maryland Public Tevision A.M. Weather had NOAA meteorologists giving a look at weather reports from across the country. Each show began with a satellite and radar segment followed by current conditions around the U.S. and then the weather forecast. An aviation conditions forecast was next. Each show ended with "WeatherWatch" a segment on possible inclement weather. The show would air 15 minutes before or after the hour on PBS affiliates after morning sign-on and pioneered the use of computer graphics in weather forecasting along with the show's trademark yellow pointer.
